Our history. (Or hospitality, Gene Carter-style.)

We’ve long been guided by our founder, B. Gene Carter. Now, the thing about Gene is, he’s always done things his way. Which just so happens to be better than just about everybody else’s way. At least his many accolades and awards would suggest as much.

A seasoned developer, Gene’s been an owner and operator in the hospitality industry for more than 40 years. Fueled by a near ridiculous passion for the industry, Gene founded Western International in the mid-1960s, launching a successful independent chain of hotels in the Pacific Northwest. He also developed several key properties for Ramada.

Then in the '90s, he began working exclusively with Hilton and Marriott. In 2002, Gene founded Texas Western Hospitality, focusing on hotel management and operations.

Today, Western International has helped develop more than 100 hotels, and Texas Western Hospitality operates more than 40 properties under the Hilton and Marriott monikers. And, we’re growing faster than ever. That’s because that same passion for hospitality that drove Gene throughout the years is alive and well in all of our associates.
